What is involved in a leather couch repair?

August 26, 2021

People buy leather couches because they are durable, long-lasting and have a supple feel that fabrics cannot match. A leather couch simply gets better with time as it grows more comfortable. Leather is resistant to dirt and spills and is easy to clean. A leather couch isn’t just a piece of furniture. It’s a statement. It’s an investment.  So if it gets damaged or torn, you don’t just throw it away. It can be repaired.

You could try repairing it yourself. Leather couch repair involves a dozen-step intricate process where you buy a repair kit that involves squeezing out specially designed glue on to the end of a toothpick and using tweezers to try to exactly place the repair and hope you can remove all the bumps to make the tear look good while trying to match the texture of the leather on your couch. Sort of like trying to bang out the dent yourself with a hammer on your Mercedes so no one will notice the ding. It sounds good, but it’s hard to pull off unless you are an expert in the field of leather couch repair.

Even someone who is handy will find it challenging to make a repair that isn’t visible to guests. That’s why it is best to leave it to the professionals who are trained in leather couch repair.
